Minnie Mouse

Unfortunately lately I haven't been the ideal blogger.... the fact is that I have been a bit busy with ordered card and also busy with lots of exercising as I will taking part in a marathon; a short one of 7km. It has always been my wish to do a marathon, and so when the bank where I work offered it's staff professional coaching to do the President's Run in December, I immediately applied! This of course doesn't leave me much free time, but I am so enjoying it and am so looking forward to the run now which I'm really hoping won't be my last!!!

Anyway, today Sunday I thought I would share this card I made for a girl who loves Minnie Mouse.

I found the image from the internet, DP is from Nitwits, star die is Spellbinders, flower border die, which I colored with my promarkers, is Memory Box and the number die is Die-Namics. The lovely letters dies are new, and they are Tattered Lace.. so pleased I got these as the other letter dies I have are larger and you had to cut a lot of letters together, not just the ones you needed, besides that they do not cut as clean as these.
I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

Pink Hair

Hello everyone. Still very nice and warm weather here, just a little bit cooler and I am loving it! 
It's a new week and so it's time for a new challenge at
The theme for this week is

I  have to confess that this is my second attempt as I made a big mess with my first one, coloring the hair with a socking pink color, which I didn't like at all! I never colored pink hair, so this theme was quite a challenge for me, but finally I managed with a lighter pink. 
The image that I am using is from our fab sponsor for this week, Sherri Baldy,
and this week three winners will each win five of her Bestie images.

Sorry for such a short post today, but have to go out now and this internet is so slow, it's driving me crazy!! I will be back with some challenges.

Hubby is abroad again this week, but this time he is in Turkey! I of course preferred it when he was in Leeds last month and had sooo wished I was there with him when he had told me there was a shop called the HobbyCraft just near his hotel!! and of course online I went to tell him what to get me he he :P 

Anyway, it's Wednesday today, time for another challenge at

The theme for this week is a color combo of
I rarely use these colors on my cards, but when I do I always wonder why I don't as they are so nice together.

For my card this time I decided to use one of my lovely Lili of the Valley stamps. Thought the color brown would be perfect to use with this stamp! DP and tag were magazine freebies, border die is from Crafty Sentiments. The centre of the flowers are those bubbles plastic embellishments which I colored also with my promarkers.. the one on the tag is however a brad.

Hello everyone and hello also to my new follower. Thanks for the following, hope you enjoy coming back.

Today it's Wednesday and it's when I share my DT Card for the the new challenge at

The theme for this week is
It's completely up to you how you interpret this theme but don't forget to use ProMarkers, FlexMarkers, AcquaMarkers or Trias on your cards/projects.
For my card this week I have opted to use a free kids' coloring image from the internet, a jungle themed one, as I had thought the song The Lion Sleeps Tonight would be perfect for this theme... and in fact that is why you can't see the lion in my card .. as he is sleeping :P 

I printed the image three times to make it 3D, which of course I colored with my promarkers and then I just embellished it with some of my dies.

The prize for the winner this week are these gorgeous stamps from our sponsor
